And to begin with…
Choosing a new laptop means that you will have to decide between several models.Some computers have power, others have more basic features.From basic use (the Web, and e-mail) to online gaming with powerful machines.
This article is therefore composed according to functions; What is the purpose of this model?
Ideapad 330-15ICH adapted to surf the internet?
Chances are that your daily use is not limited to surfing the Internet, and that you need the other functions as well.A minimum quality level is important to guarantee reliability over time. It is a balance between a 1st price and the latest multi-processor designed for professionals.In fact, it’s all about finding a product with the right price/quality ratio. This product will thus perfectly meet your needs.By putting on the market the Ideapad 330-15ICH, Lenovo offers a well thought-out product of very good quality.
It’s a big screen that you have: 15.6 inches that will be less easily transported compared to an ultra book. The computer is equipped with one of the latest processors Intel Core i7-8750H. Its power will give you the assurance of having a laptop that will work very well for 10 years. In addition, this model will make your web browsing sessions pleasant and fluid. Very clearly, with only 4 Gb ofRAM, this laptop is not the best equipped model. It is highly likely that if you decide to use the Ideapad 330-15ICH, you will have to add at least 2 Gb to one of the avaiilable.Thanks to this, the laptop will allow a more fluid navigation.
The size of the hard drive makes this laptop one of the biggest. Even if you think 1000 Gb is more than enough, it’s surprising to discover that it’s easy to fill a disc completely with photos, movies or games in a very short time. Here, Lenovo provides with this Ideapad 330-15ICH a laptop that will allow you to watch all your films locally for a long time.
In the end, with an autonomy of 7 hours, you won’t have too much time to surf the web. You will have a limited time of freedom, needing to have the power kit nearby. It’s annoying, because the interest of a laptop is still to be able to use it everywhere, without it being plugged in.
The Ideapad 330-15ICH- the right model for streaming and videos ?
The Ideapad 330-15ICH will now allow you to go beyond the exclusive use for work and will also serve as a tool for digital entertainment. A blend of your TV, stereo and media players in one machine. Among all the laptops of the moment, it appeared to us as one of the best for multimedia use. A quality of image and sound that allows it to achieve an excellent score in this category.
For this model, Lenovo thought big. Large by size, with 15.6 inches and a high resolution of 1920×1080. This model has a wide screen that will be essential for viewing your movies and streaming video. The color contrast is sharp, and the image is bright, no matter from what angle you look at it.
Note that one eliminatory criteria for some nomadic users is its weight; here this model weighs 2.2 kg, partly because of the screen size.
Unfortunately, the screen of this model is not provided with a glossy finish. This results in poorer quality in environments with intermediate to low light levels. The display legibility will therefore be a little off.
Therefore, when used in daylight conditions, you will appreciate the lack of this feature, as the light induces reflections, making it difficult to view.
For the sound part, the Ideapad 330-15ICH is equipped with a correct sound card and speakers. To test the audio quality, we turned up the volume with a movie trailer and then with a few songs of different types. Even if it does well, this laptop will not be able to compete with a good hi-fi system. In short, it is relevant here to consider buying additional speakers if you are very sensitive to the quality of this function.
With a processor type Intel Core i7-8750H, Lenovo offers a high performance solution. Belonging to the latest generation of processors, this laptop will not be impressed by multiple multimedia tasks. Performance corresponding to billions of calculations per second.
Equipped with the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 graphic card, and with 4 Gb of RAM, you will be able to see your movies and even do photo editing if needed. Not good enough for 3D imaging professionals, but good enough for most of us.
Concerning the connections, this model has available 3 ports. Much better than most of the competition. Plenty of room to connect your mouse, speakers and other USB keys.
About the batteries, be aware that you will have some time before you have to reconnect the power. Lenovo promises 7 hours of battery life; that’s about average.
The Ideapad 330-15ICH to use while travelling.
Easier to transport than a desktop computer, it is not intended for travelling. This seems to be the issue that the Lenovo didn’t really take into account in the design of this Ideapad 330-15ICH. It only fits in a computer bag dedicated to its size, and if you decide to take it in your suitcase, it will be at the expense of clothes, it is so big.
Forget about vacations and commuting.
It is one of the heaviest laptops in its class, with 2.2 Kg. It’s complicated when you have to transport it. For a laptop it”s bulky to move. The weight is mainly related to the size of the screen. For 15.6 inches, on the other hand, it allows you to have a clear display when you want to browse the internet or write e-mails.
The designers of this did not consider it useful to integrate the backlit keyboard. Not necessarily useful, except for those in dimly lit places.
Despite the absence of a shiny slab, you have good image definition. The viewing is up to the mark.
This model offers a pleasant user comfort. The anti-glare matt tile allows this laptop to be used outdoors even in bright sunshine.
Equipped with a processor Intel Core i7-8750H, this model has a very low power consumption. It has a very low voltage, allowing you to benefit from a greater autonomy and thus reduce and extend the life of the batteries.
Please note that the autonomy is provided as an indication by Lenovo, and that you should rather take 70% of this value into account.
An autonomy of 7 hours allows this model to average what the competitors do.
Even if the use of this laptop is dedicated to business trips and travelling, it will be more comfortable in an office mainly. Because, due to its weight and size, every move will put you at risk of damaging it. Equipped with a standard 1000 Gb hard disk, it will make possible an almost unlimited number of writing cycles (recording/erasing). On the other hand, unlike an SSD type hard disk drive, it will be slower in terms of the time required to boot up or to leave the standby mode.
When it comes to taking your laptop with you, it will seem safer to do so only occasionally. And the only times you’ll have to carry it will be between the bus or train and your hotel room. The reason for this is its size; with 15.6 inches, it is one of the largest laptops of the moment.
At the connector level, this model provides 3 inputs. That makes it one of the best equipped models on the market.
The techno bluetooth of this model will allow you to connect locally to any type of device that accepts this communication protocol: phone, connected speakers, car…
Finally with the Ideapad 330-15ICH, Lenovo deliver us a laptop at a tight price but not intended for travelliing, or as an exception.
The Ideapad 330-15ICH for audio or video editing ?
Considering that the assembly that you intend to carry out is of the range of leisure, this Ideapad 330-15ICH can suit you.

With 1000 Gb hard drive size, you have enough space.That’s pretty much what they do on other laptops. However, it is possible that you will fill this space quickly as the films may take up space. Lenovo has made a less expensive technological choice by putting only one standard hard drive. A choice of solidity that is certainly relevant, against a choice of speed that could have broken in 5 years.
In terms of autonomy,the Lenovokept it simple. Indicated for an autonomy of 7 hours by the manufacturer, it is preferable to keep your charger close by if you need to make changes while on the move or if you use a lot of resources for your audio or video editing. However, it’s still a decent average range.
For the connector part, the Ideapad 330-15ICHhas the USB3 format. The latest convenient protocol for interfacing computers and electronic devices such as external hard drives. This standard allows transmission speeds of up to 5 Gbit per second, about ten times faster than USB 2.0.
It will also do very well for word processing or web browsing when you need it. In short, an interesting choice in this price range.
The Ideapad 330-15ICH- the right model to play with?

Lenovo like most manufacturers, knows that intensive and extensive use of the computer in game mode requires performance. It corresponds to a median choice, neither extremely powerful nor too expensive.

Under normal conditions of use, i.e. during the day, you will have no difficulty with the absence of a backlit keyboard.
It has a storage space of 1000 Gb.That gives you a little time before you have to find another data storage area.
